Wallpaper not showing up with "Use a different image for each monitor"

I'm having a similar problem. My secondary monitor will show wallpaper when "Background Mode" is set to "Span an image across all monitors" or "Use the same image on each monitor," but no wallpaper when set to "Use a different image for each monitor." Disabling "Use transitions when changing wallpaper" did not fix the issue. (Windows 10 x64 with the latest version of DF Pro: 9.6.1)

Thanks! It looks like this was copied with the "Use same image" option. Could you set it up with "Use a different image for each monitor" again, then send a new copy of the troubleshooting info?

Now with "Use a different image" enabled. Thanks.

Thanks! It looks like monitor 2 is set for My Images with the slideshow option enabled, but no folder has been chosen for the images. If you select monitor 2 in the DisplayFusion wallpaper configuration and then click "Add Folder" and choose the folder of images, it should work after that

Hope that helps!

Thank you, Keith -- that fixed my problem! I had assumed the folder chosen for monitor 1 would apply to monitor 2 as well.

Ah, I see the logic now: Both "Span an image across all monitors" and "Use the same image on each monitor" necessarily use the same image and therefore the source folder is already determined for those options. But "Use a different image for each monitor" could be from a different location, thus the folder must be specified.

Yep, that's correct!
